Through online collaboration with students from other disciplines, you can broaden your horizons even further. The Composition for Film and Theatre programme has existed as a main subject in the Jazz & Pop department at the Arnhem Academy of Music for ten years already.

At the ArtEZ Academy of Music, we use the latest real-time techniques so that you can compose and play together accurately, even at a distance. Once you graduate from Composition for Film and Theatre, you will be a composer at the centre of the artistic world, with a strong vision and a broad outlook on the musical and creative playing field.
